Default Questions. Red nose due to drinking

Hi everyone. Ironically, I have been doing pretty well with moderating my alcohol consumption, BUT I am beginning to notice my red nose is getting worse. I just recently found out about the relation of a red nose and drinking too much. Does this go away with abstinance does anyone know? Also, now that I know my red nose is due to drinking, does this mean other areas of my body are damaged? Would really like some answers on this, thanks guys.

Have you considered that you may have rosacea? If you don't know much about it, google 'rosacea symptoms' and if you think you might, see a dermatologist. I went to a dermatologist years ago because I had zit like things on my face that never went away and was told I have rosacea. Alcohol and other dietary factors can make it flare up, but alcohol isn't the cause of it.

Default Hi Over

From experience with certain relatives - Yes, definitely.

Also, when I used to drink hard liquor (mixed of course), when I used my Ventolin inhaler (for Asthma) my cheeks would get very red.

Lord, your thread just took me back and made me reflect on how much I actually did used to drink. In fact I recall trying to hide my rosy cheeks with makeup.

I never let that thought resinate in my mind until now. Thank you !

You may want to consult your physician.

Take Care . . . and keep coming back to MWO

The broken blood vessels in and around the nose... for long-term heavy drinkers... those generally don't go away. They might fade a bit with time. They do keep getting worse, if you keep drinking (plus, the tissue in your nose can get thicker, fleshier, and start looking pitted). It stops getting worse, if you stop drinking.

I think some laser work can be done done now to reduce the redness. Clinique just came out with a loose mineral powder that neutralizes redness. At an earlier time, I would have needed it for my cheeks but now I happily bought blush. Also, stay hydrated.

Hi Over. I had to look twice for a minute. I thought I'd posted something that I didn't. (Same avatar.)

I've had a red nose for years due to heavy drinking. I also have rosacea so needless to say, my face can look RED. My red nose is not due to rosacea tho. Since I have stopped drinking I have noticed the redness reducing. The redness will probably never go away entirely unless I have some laser work, but it is much less red than a month ago.

The only way to know if other areas, such as your liver are damaged, is to get some tests done by your doctor. Your liver generally regenerates itself when you stop hurting it, unless it is too far gone.
